Great turnout today.

We had a range from 1953 - 2016. Hard to think of AR models that we missing - no Touring Spiders. It was a great time. We took about 38 cars for four laps of the road course during the racing lunch break.

And the Youngest AONE Member, my little guy. He is enjoying a pretend ride at home after the races. Wish he could have joined us on the track, mom and dad got a little nervous about that one. Maybe next year!

John & Paul,

Thanks for posting the photos. Yes, there was a great turnout with several interesting Alfas I'd not seen at other meets. Highlights for us were the parade laps and watching the 2 lead GTV's fighting it out during the Alfa feature race.

Thanks for the update John. Sorry I missed it. The rain was just to heavy here in the morning. See you in Vermont.

car corral

Wow- great turnout and great cars! I strolled around the corral after the first mini monsoon, so I guess I missed quite a bit.
after the second monsoon it turned out to be a nice day.

Hey JT - I had a nice chat with your dad. Here is a picture I snapped of your car. It is very nice.

Are you going to race at the Convention in Montreal?

Hi John- Thanks for posting. Unfortunately, I can't make it to Montreal. I was really hoping to get there, but the timing isn't right.

Sorry to miss this and the cars and coffee at Glynn Motorsports. He had my 1750 motor which I now have back in my possession and will be completing in the next month. Sadly a winter project that crept into summer. I'm marking off AONE dates for wings and wheels and the Tutto shows. Hope to be back on the road by then.
